Philippine capital bans firecrackers for New Year revelers amid pandemic


Manila, Dec 31 (EFE/EPA).- Filipinos on Thursday were out shopping for fireworks for New Year's evening. The Philippine capital of Metro Manila and several regions in the country, however, issued bans on use of firecrackers and fireworks in household areas and public spaces, limiting fireworks displays marking the New Year to a few venues specifically authorized by local government units. The ban comes as authorities aim to prevent mass gatherings of revelers to curb the spread of COVID-19 and avoid firecracker related injuries.
